    I truly LOVE getting to know the history and culture behind Vampires within novels! How did they originate? What do they thrive on? Why do they exist?

    When you're able to understand them in more depth and understand what they're really capable of, it makes them that much scarier.

    A good Alien story (in my opinion, anyway) is finding some sort of humanity in these extra-terrestrial species. If you can’t sympathise, empathise or even relate to them, then what purpose do they provide the novel? Do they serve any purpose at all?

    You may not be able to understand their words or actions, but it’s still feasible to understand their intent and perhaps even their emotional capability. Whether you despise them or love them, these opinions can only be derived from understanding them.
